Subject: great maps
These maps are great. The history of US states and territories; and the reason I found this atlas, it shows the village of Altenmarkt in Carniola, then a part of the Austrian Empire. That area is now Slovenia, and there is no town of Altenmarkt, nor an area called Unterkrain -- the listed birth place of one of my ancestors on an 1891 passport application. I learned that Unterkrain is German for Carniola, and now Dolenjska in Slovene. All the other places named Altenmarkt are out of consideration for me, becaus of this map. It even shows the 'language island' of Gottschee, nearby. That is a place with a story, from the Austrian Empire and with a sad time arising from Hitler in WWII. Thus I know the river is Kolpa, and I can search for the modern town name, if one exists.

These maps are comprehensive, as well as telling how the world looked in 1899 -- borders and names so very much changed from today, 2009.
